The Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS is the first and only Huawei phone to come with an in-display fingerprint scanner. It may not be the only one for long. There are reports the soon-to-be-announced Honor 10 may join it.
According to a Twitter post from @HonorNews, a trusted source said at least one model of the Honor 10 will have its “fingerprint sensor on display”. It also adds that there will be several variants of the Honor 10.
The tweet was quoted by popular leaker Roland Quandt and he says that a trusted source has corroborated the rumor about a model having an in-display scanner. Notwithstanding, he is sure there is a model without the fingerprint in the display.
We was just informed by a trusted source that at least one model of the upcoming honor 10 will have the fingerprint sensor on display. Accordingly, there will be several variants of the #honor10.

Looks a lot like Honor will have more than one version of the #honor10 – trusted source corroborating rumors about a variant with in-screen fingerprint reader. (I know for a fact, that there will be a model without this) https://t.co/hL6LyPCdme

We won’t be surprised if Honor releases multiple models with the scanner in different positions. Vivo did the same with the X21 which has a version with an in-display fingerprint scanner called the Vivo X21 UD.
The Honor 10 launches tomorrow, so we will not have to wait for long to confirm if the above is true. Leaked renders already show that the fingerprint scanner is on the chin in one variant.
The Honor 10 will have a 5.84” FHD+ display with a notch at the top. The Kirin 970 will be the chipset of choice and it will be paired with 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Storage should also reach 128GB depending on the variant.
According to TENAA, it will have a 16MP + 24MP dual camera combo on the rear that are arranged horizontally. It will also have a 24MP selfie camera, run EMUI 8.1 and have a 3,320mAh battery.
After launching in China tomorrow, it should head to Europe in May.
